40. Timeline: A Short History of Time

Timeblazers Jen (Heidi Leigh) and Sam (Mike Ackerman) travel back in time with Alex (Stephen Joffe) to help him get the big picture about time and history. First Alex learns that dinosaurs existed about 63 million years before the first primitive people appeared on Earth; so people and the great beasts never met. They jump to the Paleolithic age, when humans first appeared, to see some cavemen, as they are often called, though very few of these people ever lived in caves. About 8000 BC the first primitive civilizations began to develop, after humans started farming; then the rise of one of the great civilizations occurred around 3100 BC, the Egyptians, who brought the world great structures like the Pyramids; next, around 750 BC, came the ancient Greek civilization, which many say is the foundation of all western culture; then from about 27 BC to 476 AD came the Roman Empire, which went into decline after growing too large to control; then came the Middle Ages from 500 to about the year 1400, when the Renaissance, which is a French word that means "rebirth" was born, and since that time mankind has evolved at a more rapid pace. 05/10DE/CC Closed-Captioned IJ 30 min.
